Less than 150 years ago, Black Americans were in chains. Now, its 2009, and my president is Black... I am truly proud and excited to say that. And it doesn't sound real to me when I say it... But I love saying it. It fills me with such pride. I am proud of my people. And by 'my people', I do mean Black people of African American heritage and how far we have come. But I also mean my fellow Americans and how far WE have come. The majority of America is still white. And they have come far enough to freely elect a Black man as president. Its a wonderful thing.
